    Pros

    I worked for Hospice of Arizona for 2 years...what an amazing company! Sad to be sold to HOV. The best hospice & service excellence!!

    None- just a tough yet rewarding industry & pressure & being bought by HOV for sure. It's a shame because this was the best hospice!!!

    I worked at American Hospice full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working as part of a team in the field and IPU is a great approach to EOL care. I felt very supported by the team members.

    Cons

    Upper management treats patients and families as numbers for reimbursement. A lot of staff turnover and poor training. HR department is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    The employees are the product.

    Pros

    Meaningful mission, leading edge technology and executive team who really "got it". Leading reputation and service focus in each field operation, and compliance focused. Committed leadership and staff.

    Cons

    Long hours, considering hospice patient-centric focus. Strong mind-set around compliance and budgetary constraints.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the team that built the company to a market leader in the early 2000s

    I have been working at American Hospice full-time

    Pros

    Better than market average pay. Excellent PTO accrual. Strong and ethical compliance department.

    Cons

    poor work-life balance, high caseloads and poor communication from senior management. Extremely expensive health insurance with less than average coverage.

    Advice to Management

    Increase communication, and explain the difficult decisions and get staff buy-in and you will be more successful.

    I have been working at American Hospice full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some truly great people at American Hospice who have a passion for hospice care. The company has worked to keep in touch with the most current standards.

    Cons

    Software system can be time consuming in the field. A clean up operation came into play a few years ago. The company has not been the same since, although I think people that have been hired in since the changes have been finding it easier than those that endured the change. I hope they can return to their mission.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the people behind the paper.

    Pros

    Good team that works together and looks out for each other, good pay.

    Cons

    Bad health insurance, corporate often leaves individual office to figure out things for themselves to fail

    Advice to Management

    Help your staff and trust clinical staff when they say they know what is best


  10. "Unethical Leadership"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at American Hospice full-time

    Pros

    Nurses actually care for the patients they serve! Their empathy ad genuine caring attitudes make the patients end of life care special.

    Cons

    FRAUD - Executive Director (Arizona) charged Medicare for procedures not performed. Was found guilty and charged a $1.8 Billion fine. Management stroked a check and continued doing business as usual.
